KurzbeschreibungThe lecture imparts methodological and instrumental fundamentals for spatial planning and will be exemplified by exploring two Zurich city quarters.
LernzielSpatial planning is concerned with the foresighted design of the built and un-built environment. Starting points are spatially relevant problems that need to be explored, clarified and solved. The cornerstone of the course is formed by an independent exploration by the student of two Zurich city quarters that involves investigating specific spatially relevant conditions, recognizing regularities and relevant problems.
InhaltThe self-study course compromises the following readings:
Chapters of:
- Lynch, Kevin: «The Image of the City»,
- Alexander, Christopher et al.: «A Pattern Language»,
- Mikoleit, Anne and Pürckhauer, Moritz: «Urban Code», and
- «SIDAIA - Spatial and Infrastructure Development: An Integrated Approach».

The graded semester performance comprises a condensed paper to be written by the student reflecting both the literature read as well as exemplarily applying the knowledge gained from the literature by independently exploring the two city quarters.
